That makes sense. I've heard they do that, but didn't know that was the official term for it. I assume they do some sort of busy work during this time?
Rick, it's not a stupid question at all. Recruits graduate from boot camp every Friday, but not enough in each to start a new A school class each week for every school in every rate. So, when arriving at the A school site, they may have to wait a couple weeks or more until enough people are there to start a full class. The process of the critical mass being there so they can start is a "class up."
Not to sound stupid, but what does it mean to "class up"?
John the bases were locked down my father in law works for a Navy base as a security officer. He told me the exercise is now over so they should be back to normal operation
Paul............One thing to think about when sending food is where it can be stored. The last thing anyone wants is for all the creepy crawllies to find the food, I can promise you the instructors won't be happy if that happens. Once he settles in and classes up he will have access to the NEX and will be able add to his food supply. When my son was in A/C schools he ate breakfast on base and did supper off base, it cost him money but he was happier with the choices and almost everywhere in P'Cola offered discounts.
Thank you John for your help. He is going to graduate in May. The time will fly by. I just want to let him know that We at home in Nebraska are praying and thinking about him. Thankx again. and GO HUSKERS!!
Paul, depends on how long he's been there. They go through stages and each time they progress, things get a little easier. Let him be your guide as to what to send. Remember, they don't have a lot of storage. Good luck to him.
hello all new to this. My son Tyler is in A school @ Gulfport MS. He says food is not as good as it was in Chicago. Is there any do's and dont's for sending hime things in the mail. I want to send him some home made food and his bible.
Well, after graduating from Basic on 1-27-2012, my son tells me that he will be starting his HM classes on Wednesday. He is more than ready to get on with it!
